The ITLM agent on AIX periodically scans the host and reports back to the ITLM server details of software installed and licensing status.
I was asked today if the agent could be forced to re-scan and report rather than wait for the scheduled scan which would not be ready until after the weekend.
This is what I did to force the scan:
Login as root on the AIX host.
cd /var/itlm stopsrc -s tlmagent mv cache cache.old mv scanner scanner.old startsrc -s tlmagent
*** Wait 10 mins or so for the scan to complete ***
cd /opt/itlm ./tlmagent -sw
The program returned :
CODAGO10I The command has been successfully executed.
…and the admin of the ITLM server confirmed a new scan had been received.
If you get :
CODAGO53E The command cannot run because the agent is busy performing another activity.
…just wait a few more minutes and re-run the tlmagent command.
Once you’re happy all is well you can remove the old cache and scanner directories.
